Excellent food and preparation. And excellent friendly and attentive service. A bit pricey but portions are the right size. Not a place to take below teenager .. quiet and pleasant French atmosphere.

Delightful with a twist. We selected restaurant for the food and atmosphere. A friend is a vegetarian so I wanted to be sure the chef would make a meal for him. It was well planned, everyone was extremely helpful and it seemed his meal was the only one we focused on all evening. My filet was very good, my husband’s pork chop was delicious and so large he couldn’t eat it all so we asked to take it with us and our friends wife thoroughly enjoyed her monk fish. Great seasonings and sauces as your would expect at a fine French restaurant . And then there was the vegetarian meal. First the chef inadvertently put a cream sauce right before serving it so he had to begin again. The staff could not have done more to try to correct the problem. Unfortunately our friend couldn’t get beyond the mishap so apologies came from servers all during the dinner. This ruined it for me and I look forward to returning for a nice dinner experience in the near future.

We had amazing friendly service and the food was quite good except the dessert. The wine list is extensive with an excellent range of prices. There's definitely something for everyone.
I selected the creme brulee for dessert and I do not recommend it. The creme was a cold, congealed mass that was just unpleasant.

It was a miserable rainy winter day when we stopped by for lunch. We were cheered by very very good food, service and surroundings. It’s the third time we’ve had lunch there. It’s an hours drive from our house and well worth the trip. Hope to return many more times.

Used to regularly dine at Pomme. First several dinners there, years ago, were great. Now the food is very average, but the prices are the same as fine French dining. I know the former chef passed, but the food and prices must match. Right now they do not. Food is very overpriced. If they want to survive they must drastically reduce prices. We will not go back anytime soon. Really wish the staff at Pomme well and hope they can adjust and survive.

Generally good. Certainly not a big city feel nor acted as such. A bit on the expensive side for a rural restaurant but it attempts to live up to French standards and didn't quite make it imo. No cheese plate. A little more catering service would have been nice.

Our meal was excellent but there was a problem with one meal which wasn’t served for at least 10 minutes after the others. Our waitress should have informed us, but did not until we flagged her and asked. Once all were served, everything was delicious.

Our service was AWFUL. We will not return to the restaurant. Our party of four paid $250.00 - in my opinion we should not have had to chase the waiter for drinks, bread, sugar, etc. when we asked for sugar for our coffee the waiter brings a tiny glass cup that offered only Splenda. And the waiter - as always - disappeared. When I had to send back my creme brûlée i was so angry. I brought two guests as we both were celebrating our wedding anniversaries. It was a terrible experience. I wanted to discuss this with an owner or the chef but my husband felt it was just better to leave and not return.

Wow! This was our first time experience for dining at Restaurant Pomme. What a treasure this restaurant is! We had just come from a holiday event and loved the festive and beautiful decor which was also very warm and inviting. Our group of 4 loves good food and wine so we were in for a culinary treat. The wine list was extensive and since we all ordered such different items, we ordered wine by the glass and we were all happy with our choices. We ordered appetizers ranging from escargot with pernod (lovely) to their yummy Autumn salad with figs, apples, walnuts, blue cheese . Our main courses ranged from scallops with a wonderful cream sauce, Cote de Boeuf Bourguignonne with a rich, multi layered mix of amazing flavors and filet de sole meuniere, light and wonderfully accented with lemon. The desserts were equally delectable!

When the chief came out after the meal we gave him a rave unlike any we have given before. We all want to find another reason to eat at Restaurant Pomme in Gordonsville very soon.

A very scenic drive from Charlottesville, rt 22, to Gordonsville, set the stage for a cozy lunch on a cloudy chilly day in this darling town. Our server, David, was personable and professional. He manned all the lunch tables with great ease. Pomme was not busy when we arrived at noon, however, by the time we left it was filling up. The creamy turkey vegetable soup was perfect as was the French onion enjoyed by my husband. My quiche and my husband Autumn salad each were very good. We did not have dessert. Our meal was relaxed with perfect time between courses. Will look forward go another afternoon in Gordonsville and Pomme.

We drive for Pomme--and it is a 70 minute drive each way--and it is worth it. The owner is our preferred server--we have had a couple of disappoints (rushed mostly) when it is not her, but the food is to-die-for. Sunday Brunch is our favorite and they can accommodate our favorite table. If I had one point to ask for--the owner should take her manners to the other servers, who are very loyal, but have a habit of pulling plates a little too fast and--for some reason--not asking for dessert, when, after all, dessert is the entire point of the meal. Pomme remains a favorite.

I was there for Sunday brunch for the first time. The choices were terrific and I enjoyed the eggs benedict over spiced tomatoes in stead of bread. My mother had crepes stuffed with scallops. Yum! to both!
Wonderful, friendly service.

A few years ago we stopped in for a meal at Restaurant Pomme on a trip through Gordonsville, Virginia on our way to some vineyards to the West of town and have since made the one hour and 15 minute trip from our home outside of Richmond just to enjoy the wonderful food and delightful atmosphere. If you you like french cooking this is for you. Although I have never been to France, this restaurant's interior and exterior captures for me the feeling of a small french country locale. My wife and I have been there a half dozen times and neither of us has yet to have a less than superb meal. We have tried them at lunch and dinner and most recently Sunday brunch and are always pleased.

My second visit to this lovely restaurant. Have not been disappointed yet. The wait staff is wonderful; attentive and friendly. Was greeted at the front door by either the manager or owner. We were 20 minutes early for our reservation but she was lovely about finding and setting up a table for us and not making us wait until our reservation. It was a rainy night and there was a fire in the fireplace, fabulous food, beautiful dinning room, and exquisite service. I could not have asked for more.

We were so looking forward to our lunch. Sadly, we were disappointed. Two of our meals were cold and two had hairs in them. The frites must have been leftover from the day before as they were cold and hard. Desserts and coffee were excellent. Skip the lunch and order dessert only. I hope it was just a very off day.

We usually always plan to enjoy Pomme at least once while visiting in Charlottesville. Food is always good and staff is friendly. Since it was early, the atmosphere was quiet and we could converse well, but toward the end of our dining, the restaurant had filled up and it became quite loud. All in all, it was a great evening.

We live in Richmond and when traveling to visit family in Palmyra, we take the opportunity to dine at Pomme. This trip, we brought friends from Williamsburg just so they could have the Pomme experience. They traveled an hour to Richmond and then the 4 of us traveled the one and a half hr trip together. It was worth the journey. We weren't disappointed!

One of the top 3 or so French restaurants in the Charlottesville area. Food is fabulous and Crystal the waitress was wonderful. Everything tasted very fresh. Would not recommend it for younger children, but late high school and older should be fine. Not inexpensive but great quality and perfectly cooked. A real treat.

On a recent weekday lunch by two couples who are experience foodies, our experience was not up to usual standards. This has been one of our favorite places to eat out for several years and we drive 45 minutes to get here. Even though they were not full and had two, maybe three servers working, the service was spotty and distracted: water glasses were left empty, iced tea refills had to be requested, plates came out at different times, the server (Crystal ??) did not know ingredients and absolutely butchered the French names of dishes. The hostess/manager was seldom on the floor so that we could call her attention to the irksome issue. Some of the food this time was underwhelming as well. Soup of the day was sold out by 12:45. Although my mussel soup was superb - rich, creamy and packed with mussels, my duck confit was dry and tough and the wild rice was gloppy. Onion soups were highly praised but overpriced at $11 each. Two salads were nice but the portions were ridiculously small. The filet of sole was perfectly done although the accompaniments were very ordinary. Every restaurant can have occasional bad days...we hope this is not the beginning of a downward trend so we will come back. But $90 for two is an expensive lunch and deserved better performance all around.
